Studies Suggest Swimmers Live Longer

Saturday, December 10, 2016 | 1:56 am

Multiple studies of over 355,000 people show that the more you swim, eat healthy, and avoid smoking, the longer you’ll live. That’s right, swimming can add up to 10 years to your life, a whole extra decade!

Swimmer’s death rate from heart disease is nearly 80% lower than the rest of the group. According to the survey only 6-8% of swimmers died of heart attacks, compared to the nearly 30% heart disease death rate of the total test group.

To become a strong swimmer, and gain the benefits of swimming, it is important to train smarter and not harder. Researchers found that swimmers who trained once-a-day efficiently kept a steady performance level, while those who trained harder inefficiently lost arm power and their performances suffered over a season.
